I’ve Been Busy Outdoors, But…


I did manage to carve out a bit of free time to work on some beadwoven triangles.  These are part of a collection that will eventually become a Kaleidocycle (inspired by CGB). It’s fun coming up with various designs for each of the four triangles that will be repeated six times to comprise a total of twenty-four joined triangles. I’ve wanted to make a Kaleidocycle for the longest time, but I always seemed to be mired down in existing projects. Mind you, I’m in no rush to finish this project…I’m enjoying the process without having a deadline that imposes time constraints!  As a child, I would constantly ask, “Are we there yet?”, but the older I grow, the more I feel the need to slow down and enjoy the moment rather than rushing to get things done before moving on to another project or the next task. I’m finding that my work ethic and ever-present perfectionism has somewhat enslaved me and kept me from truly enjoying the nuances of the journey. The destination is the end result, but taking time to savor the road traveled along the way makes life far sweeter!

  1. I hope this will become a pattern for your Etsy website. I would take it just as is.

    • I’ve already made color charts for the triangles so if it turns out, I will definitely offer a tutorial and kit although it may not happen until midsummer…life is just so hectic these days and I’ll be away from the studio for a while, taking time to “smell the roses”.
